Welcome to the home page of the Virtual reality and Graphics Architectures (VGA) research group in Tampere University. The VGA group is active in graphics research since 2015, building on long experience of Tampere University of Technology on Customized Parallel Computing platforms. Our main research areas are computer graphics hardware architectures and virtual reality.
Virtual and augmented reality is now emerging as a major application area. However, a fluid VR experience is computationally demanding to produce and is currently limited to powerful desktop computers. Our research aims to enable virtual reality in mobile devices with restrictive power and energy budgets by exploring new graphics hardware architectures and software systems.
